Good start, could use some improvements
By , for WP 3.8.1

As others have said, it would be useful to be able to select a WHITELIST of countries and have the plugin select the non-requested countries automatically. It would also be easier to have certain "geographic zones" selected with a single click, rather than having to select every country individually. I have chosen NOT to downgrade the plugin for this shortcoming.

The tools area was useful in discovering that many attacks are launched from countries I would have considered "safe", and leads me to make a suggestion for an improvement.

Would it be possible to use crowd sourced feedback from all the copies of this plugin installed worldwide to collect a list of IP addresses that routinely probe WordPress backends, and use that information to SUGGEST IP addresses that should be added to the blacklist, regardless of country?

nice one - but could be improved
By , for WP 3.8.1

A lightweight script that works as advertised.

The only bugger is that you have to manually select each country you want to block which is very tedious if you just want to allow a few countries.
This plugin would greatly improve if one could select which countries to allow instead of which to block.

Doesn't fully work for me
By , for WP 3.8.1

Since the update last week it seems to be working somewhat, though it seems some countries still bleed through. As it sits right now I'm using it in combination with htaccess.

If you like you can try this tool "at your own risk" as all countries may not be blocked for you and I'm unsure how often this gets updated. ;)

This plugin works really well. It has stopped large amounts of spam coming through to my sites.

The support from the author is amazing and very quick.

Highly recommended.
